Today is Brexit Day – The U.K Formally Departs The European Union at 11:00pm…

I think it is fair to say: no individual has worked harder for this day than Britain’s Nigel Farage. Without his relentless work to organize voters to remove the U.K. from the European Union; and then to organize again -three years later-  to break the Brexit stalemate in Parliament; this momentous day would not have arrived.  [Tweet]

(Via Daily Mail) Boris Johnson will deliver a plea for the country to move on from Brexit as the UK finally leaves the EU tonight.

In an address to be broadcast shortly before Britain’s departure at [11pm U.K. / 6pm U.S. ET], the Prime Minister will insist that Brexit marks ‘not an end but a beginning’.

And in a sign of the new Government’s changed approach, he will convene a symbolic Cabinet meeting this afternoon in Sunderland, the first city to declare for Brexit when the 2016 referendum results came out.

Tonight he will stress his belief that the referendum was a vote not just to leave the EU, but also for lasting change in neglected areas of the country. Mr Johnson will describe Brexit as ‘the moment when the dawn breaks and the curtain goes up on a new act’.  (Read more)

.

In honor of Brexit Day, it’s worth remembering one of the funniest moments in the history of Twitter that occurred June 2016; on the day the U.K. first voted for freedom:

Many of us stayed up that night in June 2016 to watch the Brexit referendum vote returns from polling stations across the U.K….  The establishment shock was incredible when they realized the majority of U.K. citizens voted to leave the European union.

The European shock was only second to a similar American establishment reaction five months later when Donald Trump won the November 2016 presidential election.

It has been a long, stressful and challenging path for Brexit supporters, filled with ups and downs.  However, today is a day for all U.K. citizens to enjoy.

Bold new opportunities await…

Congratulations.

    Thank you, Sundance, for your tribute to one amazing individual, Nigel Farage. Thank you also all the well wishers in the USA. We will be celebrating in style tonight in the UK, but there will need to be vigilance with Boris. We still need Nigel Farage. Also, President Trump has been, and is continuing to be, profoundly significant in saving the UK. Heartfelt gratitude to President Trump.

    On todays AmericanThinker, there is an article on Brexit, Nigel Farage leaves with a florish?
    It has a link to a video of Nigel Farage making his final speech to EU Parliament.

    I don’t know how to do links, but you GOTRA see this. Makes scene in Animal House look prescient. He gives a classy, robust FU to EU, and they look petty, chickensh*t and impotent in responce.

    Many great lines, but one part of his 4 minute speech stands out;
    Its worldwide, Globalism vs Populism,..and funny thing about Populism; its pretty popular!

    Anyway, strongly reccomend you watch the 4 minute video, and if anyone knows how to post it here, that would be great!

        The Irish politician who went viral after cutting off Nigel Farage’s microphone in the European Parliament says some of his party colleagues disagreed with his actions.
        Fine Gael MEP Mairead McGuinness, who is First Vice-President of the European Parliament, turned off Mr Farage’s mic mid-sentence during a speech about leaving the EU this week, for disobeying parliament rules by waving a Union flag.
        Ms McGuinness can be heard saying: “Please sit down, resume your seats, put your flags away, you’re leaving.
        On whether she would miss Mr Farage in the parliament, Ms McGuinness said that Europe should be worried that this is not the end of Mr Farage.
        “I don’t think I’ve seen the back of him,” she said.
        “Because I think he’s going to continue, just not in the European Parliament.
        “If you listen to what Nigel Farage says, he’s not going to stop now, he’s not retiring, he’s going to keep going not just in the UK but right throughout the European Union, so the challenge we face might be greater from a European perspective.

    Back in the 190s, we started hearing talk of “EU,” and a unified currency. My mind had already been spoiled by having attended a class or two in regular “economics.”

    Having been lectured well on Adam Smith, pondered, “what a dumb idea. One country will strive to create wealth, which will boost the value of the currency. At the same time, another will fail to support productivity, will do deficit spending, will buy votes with programs and welfare for a constituency, and all will be in a shambles”

    I thought surely people smarter than me would decline the opportunity to tie their cart to such a horse.

    Greece is in a shambles. And for no good reason. What are they lacking? They have great people. Warm-water ports. Strong agricultural base. And, some commercial products and services that can really boost average income by demanding prices far beyond production costs, and with exclusivity. Tourism: Greece is beautiful, and has great historical sites. Bam. Agriculture: you can produce cheese, olive oil, wine, and a few other things, slap a “Made in Greece” label on it, and get far more than $3/pound for cheese, more than $10/bottle of wine, more than $5/bottle for olive oil. Bam. Greece is limited in natural resources relative to some nations, but still should be able to be performing swimmingly as yet another sovereign nation.

    Some of the problem has been well-documented: Greece got into deficit spending that it could disguise in various ways, due to the nature of the loans. That is half the story. I believe the other half is that Greece was tempted to satisfy budget demands by overspending, supported by too much borrowing, AND knowing that financially Greece could only fail so hard since “their” currency could not fully fail: the EU would rescue them.

    So, the politicians bought votes, the business people were happy, and Greece went into major financial turmoil circa 2010, with EU being the responsible older brother.

    When I started the Dave Ramsey, and started listening to his radio show, I was struck that people making three times what I was making were in far worse financial shape than I was. It really hit me: it is the ratio of income and outgo, dummy. Some times, you can borrow your way out, or depend on “family” to bail you out.

    This is what EU set up: some countries are the enablers, and some are the deficit-aholics. The enablers want and need more resources to sustain the deficit-aholics. But it is not a true need: as I note, Greece has an excellent set-up for prosperity. [I have made this same case in the cases of Puerto Rico, and Mexico – Mexico by many indicators should be ruling the world].

      There was a documentary produced in and about Greece in the early/mid 1960’s. It was on TCM a few months ago which is how I know of it.

      It was about the radical youth changing and demanding reforms and embracing socialism verses the older generation, mostly still in power, who also suffered the depression and prior world wars. My wife is Greek as usher entire family so I watched it. Clearly it was the beginning of their socialist downfall. And a younger Soros helped it along.

      The parallels to this country today are eerily similar.

  15. Bloody good show, Nigel is a man among mice but this is true evidence that courage can be contagious, love of country can make backbones stronger and the desire for freedom is an unstoppable force for those that stay the course.

    I do have this sneaking suspicion that this celebration would not be happening today if it was not for some fellow named Trump. Many Brits see Nigel and The Donald as the solid rocks in a sea of change.

      I read that the British have called only three prime ministers affectionately by their first name(s): Winston (Churchill), Maggie (Thatcher) and now Boris (Johnson).

      The British saved Europe by standing firm against the Nazis taking over Europe in 1940. Eighty years later, the Brits are standing firm against the EU taking over Europe. In the first case the USA came to Britain’s aid. Fingers crossed we will do the same this time, too.

    I almost have tears in my eyes.

    The Battle hymn of the Republic. From our blood-stained struggle to ensure freedom for all would not perish from the Earth, it also served as and tribute to a man who did much to ensure the freedom of the English nation and likely ours as well.

    Please skip to about 2:20 in this video clip to catch it…

    I pray for many more shared blessings of freedom in the years to come.

    My country, ’tis of thee,
    Sweet land of liberty,
    Of thee I sing;
    Land where my fathers died,
    Land of the pilgrims’ pride,
    From ev’ry mountainside
    Let freedom ring!

    Our fathers’ God to Thee,
    Author of liberty,
    To Thee we sing.
    Long may our land be bright,
    With freedom’s holy light,
